In Joshua 6 Jehovah strictly forbid the people from keeping anything after to conquest of Jericho.
In Joshua seven Achan did not obey and the command and took some and tried to hide it from everybody. When the Israelites went to battle against a smaller tribe they were trounced because of Achans disobedience.
How about you?
Are others suffering because you are disobeying Gods commands?
Is your family or marriage suffering because you are flagrantly having an affair? Could it be that your company loses a contract and people lose their jobs because you cheat a company you do business with?
Could a sports team you play on be disqualified because you are using illegal drugs?
When I was a tree planter one jerk buried all his trees instead of planting them. When the company we were contracted out to found out what he did, we were all fired and lost and entire seasons wages. Considering tree planting is one of the hardest jobs in Canada and the season is only so long and we worked and suffered so much for those wages we were less than happy with him and he had to have the police escort him out of town for his own safety.
Prayer: Please Jehovah Yeshua (God our deliverer) rescue me from the temptation in any way to be dishonest. The consequences although unforeseen now will have dire results for myself and many innocent victims because of my greed. I sincerely request this in the name of He who resisted the evil ones sly ploys to prevent Him from His faithful calling Jesus Christ. Amen
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
